NASCAR stars push for 'new' to improve state of racing

Would NASCAR seriously consider a Cup Series race on the dirt at Eldora?

Down to the wire

While mostly focused on NASCAR, this column may also feature other interesting and exciting moments from the world of motorsports. Larson said two years ago that he didn't think the Cup Series should race on dirt. It would fit NASCAR's M.O.to go from Trucks to XFINITY to test some things out first before it ever even considered Cup, kind of like it's doing with the All-Star Race rules package.

There will also be seven press conferences throughout the day, including the eventual pole victor.

Eldora hosting a Cup race would be a departure from numerous places NASCAR now has Cup Series races. "If you're a great race auto driver, you should be able to compete with them", Bell said. Stewart thinks that the company can be pressured into pondering it if the fans are vocal enough, so if you'd like to see it happen, the time to reach out and make your voice heard is probably now. Their race will be 55 laps on September 29th.

NBC sports is reporting that the PJ1 traction compound (though it is referred to by many other names in the garage area) will be applied to the racing surface at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in anticipation of this weekend's races. The middle groove will include a 12-foot section without the traction compound. Wednesday night's Truck race actually had fewer viewers than it did in 2017.

Tony Stewart watched NASCAR's Truck Series drivers go four wide in a battle for the lead in the waning laps and two trucks speed side by side for an incredible finish on Wednesday at Eldora Speedway. "We have races on super speedways, intermediate tracks, short track and road courses and there are guys that are specialist on all of them".

Having promoted NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events at his half-mile dirt oval for the past six years, Stewart eyes a NASCAR Cup Series race sometime in the future.

With NASCAR acquiring ARCA, is it possible that they are now considering a similar idea to what Marks proposed?

Briscoe, who now competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, found a ride and drove his Ford to a classic, fender-rubbing victory over his ThorSports Racing teammate Grant Enfinger, edging Enfinger at the line by a scant.038 seconds. "The best race auto drivers should have to run a superspeedway, they should have to run on a short track, they should have to run on an intermediate course, they should have to run on a road course and they should have to run on a dirt track". "We have time to fix that".

"It is very different than what we do week in and week out. It's obviously hard to find those last couple of tenths". He's now eighth in the standings but has yet to win a race this season.
